Speaker Heastie Statement on Metro-North Train Accident

I am deeply saddened by the tragic accident on the Metro-North line near White Plains this evening that claimed the lives of six people and injured at least 12 others. Thousands of hardworking commuters use this busy rail line every day and this accident highlights the need to be ever vigilant and mindful of safety regulations. My thoughts and prayers are with victims of this terrible tragedy and their families.
